I noticed that in iOS6 I can't listen to podcasts in iTunes, but only in the new podcast app.
What is troubling me:
- The play-count, played/unplayed status, or progress, of podcasts I listen to via the podcast app don't update in iTunes.
- I have subscribed to several podcasts inside of the podcast app with syncing turned on. But I don't see these show up in the iTunes podcast section.
This must be a bug, or Apple has completely separated iTunes podcasts from podcasts on iOS6 devices. If that's the case, I'm not sure what the 'syncing' option in the podcast app settings is for.
How do I fix this?
Edit for clarification: I found that the only meta-data value that wasn't syncing was the "Last Played" date, which was caused a smart playlist dependent on that value not to work. So that may be a bug. Otherwise, I'm still don't understand why iTunes isn't syncing with the podcasts I subscribe to via the podcast app.
